Small Shield Shaped Shawl Pins from the Hobnob Collection
This smaller versions of our Large Shawl Pin was designed for use with fibers that might not be able support the larger version, alpaca for example. While we call the item a shawl pin, it can be used as a ornament for a sweater, a hat adornment, some have used it as a bag closure.
These handmade clay shawl pins are individually decorated using colored slip (a liquid clay), syringes and dipping onto stoneware clay...making each a unique. Even though we carefully construct, glaze and fire each piece in the same manner, variation occurs and gives unique qualities to the piece.
After being fired to a tad over 2100 Faranheit, an appropriate brass stick (also made by LickinFlames) is chosen to finish the piece. Each piece is approximately 2 1/2 inches.
The choice is for your favorite color or choose, "Brenda's Handpicked Choice" and let her make the decision.
Remember that because of the handmade nature of the brooch, some variations should be expected. The pieces shown in the pictures are only examples and are not the pieces that will be sent. The quality is always the same standard that LickinFlames is known for, but some variations in color, design element placement and decoration patterns needs to be allowed. We know you will love the piece that is shipped.
